Forum rules


When you put a new thread up in the Workshop please put your car's year & model in the post subject/thread title, along with just a brief indicator of the problem.

Year - Car Model - Brief description of issue. FOR EXAMPLE- ''1999 9-3 - Problems starting when hot.''

For Tech II issues or help requests please state the following in your thread title ''Tech 2 help required - state issue and your location ''.


Please also add as much information as you can about the problem, to your post.

This will help us to help you, without having to ask basic details such as what car you have.


Threads with non-compliant titles will be moved to The Pit Lane (in which no replies can be posted, but the OP can edit the thread - upon which the thread will be released to the workshop forum, note compliant threads will be moved back when the mod/admin team next visit the Pit Lane. if your thread has been sat in the Pit Lane for 24hrs+ after editing, pm Tech II to request release)

Nb. Generic thread titles for truly generic issues that genuinely are not model or variant specific (such as "how do I change the spring in an forge wastegate actuator") are acceptable

**The first 5 posts for new users require individual moderator approval (which they will only get it if they are in line the rules of the forum). Please be patient and allow time for that to happen, and avoid duplicate postings.**

Car Models: 9-3 2.2 tid
Hello so my saab 9-3 2.2 tid 2004 year is not starting.

One day i changed fuel filter after changing it i drove for about 30minutes or so, everything was fine. After 24 hours it didn't start. I checked my obd 2 scanner and it showed P0607 fault. Also i checked the fuel filter housing and when i opened to see the filter there was almost no diesel in it. I refilled it, sucked the fuel through the vent in front of the engine on the fuel line, tried to start - nothing.
Asked a friend for him to tow me.While towing in second gear, the engine seems running but doesn't react to me pressing the gas pedal and when i press in the clutch the engine just stalls.
Changed the fuel return pipes and T's, changed fuel filter housing gasket and still same.

Any ideas?

ClasicMan,

My manual says:

"It is not essential to manually prime and bleed the fuel system after any operation on the system components, although, the start uo time can be reduced by connecting a suitable vacuum pump to the service outlet on the injection pump and drawing fuel through the system until it is bubble free. Refit the service outlet cap before starting the engine.

Start the engine ( this may take longer than usual, especially if the fuel system has been allowed to run try - operate the starter in ten second bursts with five second rest in between each operation ) and run it at a fast idle speed for a minute or so to purge any trapped air from the fuel lines. After this time the engine should idle smoothly at a constant speed."

Repeat as required.

I bought a 2.2 9-5 with this fault. I tried everything but the eventual fix was a new pump.
I couldn't tell you why it happened, but I am told this fault can be because the pump has been run too long dry with no diesel.

No fuel in filter housing suggests you had no fuel. I see you have subsequently ensured there is fuel at the rail. After rescuing a 2.2 I suggest the following:

Clear the code
Make sure fuel is there
Suck through at the front rail (suction type brake bleeder) or pressurise the tank
Pull off the pipe intercooler > engine
Put easy start / brake cleaner into the pipe, refit, no need to secure
Start the engine
It'll run for 5-10 seconds before running out of fuel
This proved to be the best way to get the pump operating & pressurising fuel system again

But, P0607 does indicate the pump is gone. Fingers crossed
